Always hide

Asked by Chloe Kever on 2010-11-18

Is there any method of making AWN always hide, IE when no windows are intersecting it, have it still hide. I'd like it to only show when I roll my mouse within the threshold.
If there is any source mod or anything it'd be greatly appreciated.
The only real problem with a source mod would be that I am having problems getting it to compile in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx due to dependencies on files that don't exist. Thus, I'd prefer a non-source-code solution over a source mod, but if it requires changes to the source code, I feel that I'll eventually figure out how to get it to compile.

Thanks again.

You can't do it through awn settings but the following should work.

Start gconf-editor.
In gconf-editor navigate to /apps/instances/avant-window-navigator/panel-<#>/panel
set the Intellihide key to 0
set the autohide key to your preferred autohide effect.

I looked, and the intellihide key doesn't exist.
Unfortunately, creating it didn't help either.
Any other ideas?

I'd suggest using the packages from the awn-testing ppa - the intellihide_mode key is present. That being said it was recently moved and if you have an older version than what is present in awn-testing then look in /apps/awn-applet-taskmanager/ (it's a boolean and you need to set it to false/uncheck)
